You can buy these tablets for peanuts. Many have issues with the USB port, so be careful when buying because no USB means no file transfer and no charging.
Speaking of charging, when plugged in it will pop up a message saying it can't charge. In fact it does charge, either turned on or turned off. It charges very slowly (usually it takes a night). Careful not to fully discharge the tablet, because many were not able to charge it back again afterwards.
It is heavy but I use it on a stand so it doesn't matter.
Great tablet for kids to watch a film or internet, because it has an amazing screen - better than many tablets as of today - amazing front facing speakers and a micro HDMI port, so you can connect it directly to the TV to watch a movie or internet/Youtube or games.
The rear camera is amazing for taking pictures or movies. The front camera doesn't matter because there is no way to connect to Skype with this tablet.
kamal, 04 Feb 2015Please tell how can be whatsapp run on bb playbook?use ddpb installer
It's a rubbish device which use is too much tough. Playbook neither runs viber,what's app nor skype and all these apps are very common and famous in use. I suggest every body that please don't waste your money because you have to feel repentance after buying it. Sohail.firstname.lastname@example.org
Great tablet! HDMI output is a great feature. No issues with downloading pdf files, word documents, or excel files. Camera is excellent considering that my playbook is over two years old. Battery life is excellent. I have used this daily for over two years and I refer to battery life in days not hours. I strongly recommend.
poor investment of resources.not user friendly,poor communication capabalities,limited!!i want my money back so that i can get a samsung
As a PB user.... I'll tell you that's weirdest tablet I've ever seen. BBworld doesn't support you with proper software Its heavy and there is nothing cool you can do with it. I mean once you will start it for the first time and set it up and start to install apps you'll be quite disappointed. No skype, no proper map (come on... Bing sux) and nothing for free. Well I cant wait once somebody will finally crack it and make us able to install a custom ROM. Otherwise I'll give it away.
Bangaram., 01 Nov 2014Hi. Im new using bb 6228.tab hey 1 doubt here is no using gsm sim card then hw cn we use net..... more

The Playbook has it's advantages, but there is a LONG list of disadvantages... I bought my 32gb this summer for $65 and thought I was getting a great deal, however once trying to use it with programs other tablets can run I was VERY disapointed. I even PAID for the blackberry version of each program I was trying to use and even after paying there were still bugs. The playbook is great if you just want a on the go TV for the kids or for long car rides. I just use my playbook for storage, it's great for all my tv shows and movies, and few select games; but thats pretty much it.
since the blackberry playbook doesn't have a sim card slot how can you make or receive calls with it
plss does dis playbook carry BBM? pls some1 should answer me cus am so sick of dis boring toy called playbook
my blackberry playbook doesnt wanna on since three days now,plz u guys should help me.If u plug it in light,it boot its self,but if it on's,its still showing the red battery bar which means that its not charging.Please wat can i do?
This is still a good tablet although it's 2 years old. I have the 64GB model, it shoots excellent photo's and videos. It's also got great speakers.
I own a blackberry playbook.It looks working cool.But the battery is draining fast.Good to play and study documents.such a nice tablet.
i like to give a few opinions ;
1. battery drain - if u start your PB and u did not use wifi but battery quickly drain. actually wifi is running background when u restart. try to on and off wifi or download du battery saver and optimize the system.
2. bridge your PB with BB phone. use PB to surf anywhere and u will notify that u just use only a little amount of BIS data than surfing using BB phone.
3. u want to play heavy games but u do not run any apps and u notify your RAM is running low. there are a few apps running background that u cannot see. download Memory Eater. it will kill anything that running background.
That was just only my opinions. sorry if my english is not good enough.
